Calceolaria cf. laguna-blancae
These plants are known as Slipper flowers or Pouch flowers due to the rounded, inflated lower lip of the blooms. They come from a range of habits in Central and South America. In the main the flowers in this genus are in shades of yellow or purple, but very often they are also spotted or splashed with contrasting colours.
Calceolaria cf. laguna-blancae is delightful, making loose mats of soft grey, woolly leaves, with lemon yellow flowers, heavily spotted red.
